This book contains four stories of survival. The storytellers, two women and two men, believed in a loving God who cared about humankind. Thanks to Stalin's reign of terror, they found themselves in many life-threatening circumstances where God appeared not to care. All four persons struggled with doubt, fear, and despair. Like Job of old, they questioned God, and like him, they also affirmed faith.
